    a picture would be great, but also, how old is the silkie? with silkies, it takes FOREVER to tell the sex.....literally (almost) you have to wait till they crow or lay an egg. but maybe someone with more silkie experience can help you.

    Quote:More indicators are streamers in roosters, bigger feet with thicker legs, a v shaped comb and of course laying or crowing. I think we would need a picture though. Like chkinut mentioned before, it is very hard to sex silkies, even more so without pictures. [​IMG]
